Emilio Cigars has a new cigar en route to retailers in celebration of the upcoming Halloween festivities, the aptly named Grimalkin Halloween Edition.
The cigar replaces the regular version’s wrapper with a Nicaraguan-grown maduro leaf, covering a Nicaraguan habano binder and Nicaraguan filler. It is being released in a single 5 x 50 vitola priced at $9.75 per cigar. A total of 300 boxes of 25 cigars are being produced by Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua, a total of 7,500 cigars.
The Grimalkin line dates back to 2011, when Emilio Cigars released a Nicaraguan puro produced at the My Fathers Cigars S.A. factory named Grimalkin, after an archaic term for an old, gray, female cat. That name lasted just about a year before it was replaced by Mousa and the cigar moved to a new series dubbed La Musa by Emilio Cigars.
In April 2018, Scott Zucca, owner of Boutiques Unified and Emilio, unveiled plans to bring back the Grimalkin brand by way of a Nicaraguan puro made at Black Label Trading Co’s Fabrica Oveja Negra. That line includes a 5 x 50 robusto and 6 x 50 toro.
Emilio Cigars are distributed by Boutiques Unified.
